Trey Burke has signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks for the remainder of the year.

The 27-year old journey man is headed to Orlando to play with his previous team, the Mavericks. This past season with the Philadelphia 76ers, Burke boasted averages of 5.9 points, 2.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds per game.

This signing is a clear attempt to add some bench depth to an already 40-win Mavericks squad.

Along with the addition of Burke comes the detraction of Willie Cauley-Stein. Stein has recently made it evident that he will sit out the resumed NBA season. With Dwight Powell already being out because of injury, this leaves the Mavericks with very few big man options aside from Kristaps Porzingis.

It will be very interesting to see how the Mavericks approach this big man dilemma.
